‘Galentine’s Day’ Ideas

It’s come to my attention that the single girls in the world (and girls that just love to celebrate) have created their own holiday that just so happens to fall on February 14th- Galentines Day. And I’m going to give you a few ideas on how to celebrate!

I think the key to making ‘Galentines Day’ successful is to do (almost) everything you would do with your Valentine and do it with your gal pals. You have a few choices here. Enjoy champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Watch a chick flick. Go to the local market and get some roses. Or you can put on your little black dress with some stilettos and go out dancing with your girl friends! Did I mention both activities require singing and dancing to Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’?

 

For option number 1, here’s what you need: 

  • Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate.
  • Strawberries
  • Comfy sweats or pjs
  • Enough tacky girl movies to last until everyone passes out (think all the old Mary-Kate and Ashley movies)
  • Bubbly
  • A bouquet of pink roses for the centerpiece of your coffee table

For option number 2, you’ll need:

  • A little black dress
  • Red lipstick
  • Ironic ‘Love’ necklace
  • Something that sparkles
  • Gel heel inserts so you can dance without much pain in your feet
  • A Taylor Swift attitude
  • A pact with your girls that there won’t be any guys that break up the night (unless he’s really, really cute!)

However you choose to spend the day, remember that being single doesn’t mean you’re alone and sometimes it can be the most exciting time in your life.

Sunday Funday: Beach and Bikini

best_friendsI so enjoy my Sundays maybe even more than my Saturdays. This weekend was no different. My good friend and I decided that we were getting a bit too pale and that we needed some time in the sun. We live about four hours from a real beach (as the bird flies its only an hour or so but water and lack of bridges ruins it). As many people do in our town, we found our own “beach” on the shores of the Patuxent River. Believe it or not, it was quite relaxing and enjoyable. Their was a light breeze, boats going by, kids in the water, and good music playing. The only thing missing was a Pina Colada!

I’m also sporting a new swimsuit! This one I found for $30 at a TJ Maxx! Its really flattering because in the front on the bottoms it looks like its a wrap style! Also the top has wiring on the sides for support and prettiness! It’s an Australian company named Seafolly that created the suit (normally upwards of $150!)

What was your weekend like? Comment below if you did anything fun!

P.S. Got frozen yogurt from a little place called Sweet Frog! Strawberry cheesecake and pineapple coconut flavor with some granola and walnuts on top! So good!
